That's weird

is it liquid? I have a little bit of fuel spatter on the underside of my cover and in the "tray" that baked a little and thickened up. Looks kinda like oil. Just a thought.

Your crankcase breather vents into your airbox. A little oil will sometimes appear there.

about 3/4 of all v-rods put a little oil in the air filter housing..it can be especially bad with just slightly overfilling the oil... if you run a little less oil 4 3/4 quarts instead of a full 5 quarts the oil carry over to the air box will be minimized.. still it isn`t a problem to worry about..
